Introducing Jenkins CI to my github projects

May 1, 2011 3 comments

On sunday morning I had an idea of introducing continuous integration (CI) tool for my projects to have one place to see how they are going.

Currently I’m forced to use CruiseControl at work, but I don’t like it much. I was looking for some more user friendly tool. From my teammates working on Java stuff I heard about Hudson. After searching a while, I found Jenkins. It’s fork of Hudson after Oracle claimed the right to Hudson’s trademark (you can read more about it at this wiki page).

It took me about 3 hours to download, install and configure Jenkins. It also includes preparing one of my current projects to run all test cases and builds configurations from command line. I thing it’s pretty easy and takes really small effort.

Now I have automatic builds with test cases execution after each change on my remote github repository. The project you see on the picture is iPhone application, but because I used GHUnit that is able to write tests results in JUnit xml format, I also can see results from all tests.

It’s just the beginning. I’ll try to find other useful features there.
